About this Article

Homeowners aren't the only ones in Fox Lake affected by flooding. Officials estimate more than 25 businesses -- many of them waterside marinas or taverns -- were hit hard by water from the swollen Chain O' Lakes. How much the widespread flooding has cost Lake County residents, business owners and communities is being determined. Officials are scrambling to compile damage assessments.
